Japan, The Land Where Pizza Hut Has A Milk Caramel And Marshmallow Pizza

pizza-hut-sweet-2

Unless you’re reading these words from the Land of the Rising Sun, you’re reading them from the wrong place. See, Pizza Hut Japan is selling the above creation, and while we don’t have a sweet tooth, we did just get diabetes by looking at it. It’s a milk caramel and marshmallow pizza, and costs 800Yen ($8) for a medium. It only comes in medium, which is probably good for everyone’s waistline. If you make your way to Japan in the near future, don’t wait around too long: it’s only available until June 30th.

Who doesn’t love Mac and Cheese? It’s the ultimate comfort food for when you’re feeling particularly glum or tired from a tough day at work. When you’re done chowing down on a bowl or two and still aren’t feeling like your old self, then hang one of these Mac and Cheese-scented air fresheners in your room or in  your car to spread that comforting scent all around.

Nothing gives good vibes like the smell of mac and cheese, but it’s obviously a bad idea if you’re on a diet. It’s available online for about $5.

PancakeBot 3D Prints Delicious Pancakes

main_pancakebot

What do you get if you slap together a hot plate, an Arduino controller, some stepper motors, and an acrylic supporting structure? A PancakeBot, is what. It’s a 3D printing machine that is absolutely unlike the boring old combination of printer assembly and widely used ink cartridges that can only print 2D images of the most delicious pancakes in the world. The PancakeBot’s creations will taste as delicious as they’re elaborate. Simply load up the batter, settle on a design, and watch as the print head lays down an edible Eiffel tower, a scrumptious SpiderMan face, or a fluffy galloping horse.

In the works since 2010 by one Miguel Valenzuela, the current version of PancakeBot doesn’t use its initial LEGO Minstorms structure and is a little more involved in its fabrication. Although not available commercially, Miguel does use this prototype to teach children in after-school programs about engineering, robot building and programming.

Ratatouille

Got some stuff in your fridge that you want to give away? Perhaps you’re going on a trip soon, but still have a lot of produce and fresh food in the pantry.

Give your food away instead to people who might need or want them. That’s exactly what you can do with Ratatouille, where you start by uploading an inventory of the stuff you currently have and want to get rid of.

PareUp1

On one hand, we’ve got people going to sleep on empty stomachs. On the other, we’ve got restaurants throwing away leftovers (AKA perfectly good food) every day when it’s time to close up. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how things work–or is it? Aiming to change this, even on a small scale, are the folks behind PareUp.

It’s an upcoming app that will let diners “pair up” with participating retailers and restaurants that will be selling their leftovers at discounted prices.

Saucony Burger Shoes1

These sneakers might not look out of the ordinary if you look at them from the front, but check it out from all sides and your stomach might just begin to rumble. Not that it actually looks like a burger that you could sink your teeth into, but it’s clear where its designers drew inspiration for its design.

The Shadow 5000 Burgers sneakers are a result of the collaboration between Saucony and End Clothing. I guess you can think of it as some sort of ode to burgers, which has grown in popularity over the years.

Peres Food Sniffer Lets You Know When Something’s Rotten

Peres Food Sniffer

If you’ve got a habit of sticking leftovers into the fridge and forgetting about them, then you might want to look into the Peres Food Sniffer. It’s basically what it’s name implies it is: a portable gadget that “sniffs” food to determine whether or not they’re spoiled or still safe to eat. Aside from forgetful people and their doggie bags, the Food Sniffer can be used to check whether something is still fit for consumption, whether it’s expiry date is three days away or many days past.

The Peres Food Sniffer works by “sniffing” and in effect, measuring the amount of volatile organic compounds and ammonia from the food, which are released when it’s about to spoil or is spoiled.
